Château Fougas was mentioned in the first edition of Ferret’s publication as a “ Great Cru Bourgeois”.
The vineyard of 17 hectares is situated on the right bank of the Gironde, thirty kilometres from Bordeaux in a beautiful region known as the, « Petit Suisse Girondine » (“Little Switzerland “).
It is a family property acquired in 1976 by Jean-Yves Béchet the son of a family of Bordeaux wine negociant and his wife Michèle. Together they have re-awakened the Terroir so that its qualities could be fully expressed in their wine.
Already certificated as a Biological producer, Château Fougas began to convert to Bio-Dynamic methods in 2010, by taking into account lunar cycles that influence the growth of vegetation and introducing the use of natural treatments in infinitesimal doses; these are the essential factors in obtaining the quintessential elements of the Terroir.
